Surfcoast Surf serves it up July 2011

It’s not called the Surf Coast for nothing!

Very high tides and huge swells battered the Great Ocean Road, Victoria this week. Day after day saw large waves breaking at all the beaches and

of the rare conditions. Building sites were quiet and many RDO’s were enforced as the biggest swell in recent years was predicted days in advance of its arrival.
The advent of the internet, i-phones and sophisticated forecasting allows surfers to know days in advance of an incoming swell and to let their mates know of the best places to be at any given time.

The attached photo was taken at a break near Lorne last Saturday, July 2011.
